1. Day of wrath, O day of mourning! 
See fulfilled the Prophet’s warning, 
Heaven and earth in ashes burning. 

2. Oh, what fear man’s bosom rendeth 
When from heav’n the Judge descendeth 
On whose sentence all dependeth! 

3. Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth, 
Thro’ earth’s sepulchers it ringeth, 
All before the throne it bringeth. 

4. Death is struck and nature quaking; 
All creation is awaking, 
To its Judge an answer making. 

5. Lo, the book, exactly worded, 
Wherein all hath been recorded; 
Thence shall judgment be awarded. 

6. When the Judge His seat attaineth 
And each hidden deed arraigneth, 
Nothing unavenged remaineth.
